GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Mar. 13, (CMC) – The sister of opposition Leader, Bharat Jagdeo, was found dead at his home, today.
According to the former President, the body of his 57-year-old sister was found by his niece and nephew.
It’s with deep sadness, I announce the death of my sister, Shanta. She was the epitome of a sister; she was a mother; my confidant and friend. She took care of me all my life and I will miss her dearly,” Jagdeo said, in a Facebook post.
In an interview with Demerara Waves Online news, Jagdeo could not say whether she died from natural causes or foul play. “I don’t know what it is. I doubt it (foul play),” he said.
Jagdeo’s sister, Shanta, lived with him while he was Head of State and now Opposition Leader.
